Course Description

Teacher in Charge: B. Davies

As Atticus Finch tells his daughter, Scout, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” (To Kill a Mockingbird.) Is this a way in which we can effectively combat discrimination, or is prejudice ultimately something that is just too difficult to overcome? This English course is based around stories of discrimination. Poetry, short stories, novels and films will be studied in order for you to understand the experiences of others, especially minorities. This is an important concept and experience for everyone who lives in our multicultural society to understand. Texts can take you into other shoes to develop empathy. You will also complete a writing portfolio prompted by the texts we study. 

There are 10 internal and 8 external credits in this course.
